MCSA Names Scott Kimble Legislative Advocacy Director

The Missouri Council of School Administrators (MCSA) has named Scott Kimble the Director of Legislative Advocacy.  Scott is well known to those in Missouri’s educational communities.  He has presented at multiple conferences, for individual school districts and at the university level on a variety of topics vital to school leaders.

Scott has spent the past six years providing counsel and litigation representation to educational institutions across the state with the Mickes Goldman O’Toole Law Firm.

Scott will work closely with the nine members of the Missouri School Administrators Coalition to represent the groups at the Missouri state capitol.  These groups include the Missouri Association of School Administrators, the Missouri Association of Elementary School Principals, The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals, the Missouri Association of Rural Educators, the Missouri Association of School Business Officials, the Missouri Council of Administrators of Special Education, the Missouri K-8 Association, the Missouri High School Activities Association and the Missouri United School Insurance Council.  

Roger Kurtz, Missouri Association of School Administrators (MASA) Executive Director, stated, “Scott’s knowledge of educational law, including work with the Office of Civil Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Missouri Commission on Human Rights, along with an exceptional understanding of education policy puts him in a position to work positively with legislators.  We are confident that he will be a great asset to all the members of the Missouri School Administrators Coalition.”

The Legislative Advocacy Director position was developed as part of the 2014-2015 MASA Strategic Plan.  The director will often be the face of the association at the Capitol and is responsible for creating strategies that identify legislative support or opposition to public education, organizing Capitol visits for members of MASA, engaging members and existing partners at the Capitol, and preparing the Legislative Bulletin.

Scott will begin his work on August 3rd and can be reached via email at scott.kimble@mcsa.org.
